Re: Severe ethmoid pain - sinus or nerve? Please help.

yes, acupuncture has helped me a lot. Although that is the same time i reduced my wheat/gluten. Not sure if all acupuncturists are like mine or not. He is more like a therapist. He was a medical dr in russia. When he came here they wouldn't just let him take the boards, they wanted him to go back to school. He says the worry/stress makes your sinuses a hot pot.. he thought for sure when i got laid off that i would end up with a sinus infection.. It creates more mucous. Hard to explain but it makes sense

Too bad you don't have more time before your surgery to see if acupuncture could help you. Surgery is such a drastic step. You might have time for an evaluation.
